Price: $70.00
Pros: Good Styling, Lots of focused light output.
Cons: Low mount keeps plastic cover from mounting over lenses properly. Had to shim with washers. Also, there is no protective flex shield over wires coming out the back.
Recommended? No

Comments: Excellent value for the money. Don't understand the silver mounts with a black housing. The housing is "slippery" and tightening the lamps without them slipping out of adjustment is frustrating. The slightest bump and they are out of alignment again. Bad design. Should have detents that lock at each slight angle.

Nice, long focused beam though. Still a good purchase, I guess but wouldn't do it again.

Price: $60.00
Pros: Inexpensive, easy to install
Cons: Some prefer a non-plastic housing. Do not adjust to point downwards, only level and upwards (plan accordingly).
Recommended? Yes

Comments: 500FF's shine a tunnel of light ahead of my Jeep. Would definitely do again.

Price: $100.00
Pros: They light up the world
Cons: Lense crack when going through deep puddles
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I really liked these lights when I first put them on my TJ. Then both lense crack with no sign of being hit by a stone. Hella eneded up replacing them twice.
One night coming out the other side of a pubble so deep it washed over the top of the windshield I noticed one of the lights was out. My conclusion is the bulb is so close to the lens that it gets so hot that dousing it with that much water caused the lens to crack. I mounted my lights on the bumper just to the outside of the headlights. Maybe if they were mounted inboard of the headlights, they might servive the water, but I wouldn't count on it.

Comments: I was given a pair of these off of a friend's volkswagon. They sat in the garage for a few years before I finally stumbled upon them. I replaced the stock 50W bulbs with 100W. They are a great addition and are perfect for night wheelin.

Pros: Solid construction, wide and low beam pattern. Classic Hella look. Inexpensive
Cons: Undersized factory harness (for 100w bulbs)
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great light from the factory. Upgrades make it even better.

With a custom 12ga harness and 100w Yellowstar bulbs, the Hella 500s really light the way!
